Proof Rooftop Bar and Blackhorse Limo offered up some free live music last night with Pasadena’s own, La Fiebre.
Well known and loved by fans since their heyday 90s, the band has not lost its touch. Musically styled after the rock bands we all grew up with, the style pushes through on their biggest Tejano hits through guitar riffs and tough bass lines coupled with horn and accordion playing that can blow one away.
Should I even provide a song list? Solo Un Sueno, Eres Mi Primer Amor, Labios de Cereza, Siempre, Si Manana Viene O No, El Amor Se Acaba, the list went on. But the crowd response to Borracho de Besos was something special. Equally awesome was their recent hit, Ni El TIempo Podra.
Proof was the perfect location for a mellow crowd who loves Tejano music. And I would suggest to Proof that they start a Tejano music series. Some of us enjoy coming out to Midtown only to find out that it’s not “$9 beer night.”
Opening band, Grupo Vital, provided an excellent set of covers. Their set-ending rendition of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’ was something we all needed since we were all singing along.
